SERVE




FIND PURPOSE SERVING OTHERS

God calls us to an active faith which includes serving others. When we shift our focus off of ourselves onto others we begin to experience the life of purpose we were created for.  And when we’re working side-by-side serving with other people, we find a sense of community.

 

Whether you want to serve inside Chelsea Free Methodist Church, in our community, or the surround area, we have exciting ways for you to get involved. 

FEATURED SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES:

PREPARE OR SERVE A MEAL


Our next Homeless Meal takes place on Sunday, February 16, at 6:00 pm, at Hill House—a daytime homeless refuge center we partner with, located in Ann Arbor. Be part of a team that prepares food and serves dinner while building relationships with the forgotten and marginalized.

STOCK EMERGENCY FOOD BANK


Did you know Chelsea's own Faith In Action has become the largest emergency service provider in western Washtenaw County? Routinely, Faith in Action provides food for 100 or more households each month. 


Help us stock their emergency food pantry during the month of February. Based on household income, patrons receive food to last 3-5 days, along with household supplies. Inventory often runs short. 


Bring can foods to service each Sunday in February. Items needed most include canned tomatoes (sauce, stewed, diced, paste), baked beans, Manwich sloppy joe sauce, chili, coffee, ketchup, mustard, soups of all varieties, and cleaning supplies (i.e., soap, Windex, Comet).

JOIN A TEAM

GOOD NEIGHBOR

The Good Neighbor Ministry Team encourages our congregation to participate, together, in events and initiatives already taking place in our community such as the Heart & Sole Race and Sounds & Sights Summer Festival.


Through involvement as good neighbors, we communicate Good Will through our presence; Good Works through serving; and the Good News of Peace, Hope, and Purpose in Jesus through relationships that develop. We'd love for you to join this new team as we develope a core group of volunteers to put feet to our vision. 

SPECIAL NEEDS CARE

Rest & Refresh is an outreach ministry dedicated to serving families with a loved one who has a special need (developmental or physical) through respite care. The ministry was birthed out of a deep desire to let families know they are not alone-God cares about your struggle-and we do too!

 

The third Saturday of the month (Sept. - May), Rest and Refresh hosts a Special Needs Care Night. Activities include: games, cooking, crafts and music. We also provide dinner and special holiday outings. 

HOMELESS

We foster relationships of kindness, generosity, and mercy in the name of Christ by providing support and supplies for those in need. Our service takes place at Hill House, a day-time refuge center for Washtenaw County residents, who need cold-weather shelter, as well as companionship, warm meals and use of amenities. 

 

We help in three ways: preparing and sharing a meal approximately once a month, delivering cases of bottled water every week, and collecting and delivering supplies needed by the homeless.

SENIORS

Our Seniors Ministry exists to develop a loving, caring, and serving community for our senior adults. Activities and events build lasting relationships. 


On the fourth Monday of each month you'll find many of our senior community at a local restaurant enjoying dinner, lively conversation, and caring for the needs of each other. We look forward to including you in one of our next gatherings.
